Support Local Restaurants During the COVID-19 Outbreak 

Cypress restaurants need your support more than ever. Many restaurants are now offering takeout, curbside takeout, and or delivery. To help you know who is offering these services we’ve created this list.

Welcome to the City of Cypress Business Assistance Program

The Economic Development Department is responsible for offering assistance to new and growing businesses in Cypress. Our office provides Cypress businesses the resources they need to thrive.  We work with local, regional and state partners to create a vibrant community of businesses. With easy access to major modes of transportation, we are a short distance from anywhere in Southern California while also minutes away from major entertainment centers.

Being one of the few Southern California cities without a Planning Commission equates to a streamlined internal plan review process and less red tape for the applicant.  Addressing your ongoing needs is our priority. This is accomplished through our small business program, AGENT (Assist, Grow, Educate, Network, & Thrive) and our larger business program, BRACE (Business Retention, Attraction, Creation, & Expansion). Both programs, which are hosted by the Mayor, meet on a quarterly basis and highlight a variety of informative topics. Your success is our success.


SCORE is a nationwide organization dedicated to the formation growth and success of small business and is a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
